Heavy Wind and Strong Winds for Ireland

While an area of area high pressure is over central Europe and brings a warming trend to western Europe this weekend, a strong low pressure system over the Atlantic will cause a cold front to impact Ireland on Saturday and parts of the United Kingdom Sunday.

This feature will spread heavy rain across Ireland. Rainfall amounts are expected to average 1.00-1.50 inches (25-38 mm) across Dublin with localized as high as 2.00 inches (51 mm) which will lead to areas of flooding.

Accompanying the heavy rain, south to southwesterly winds ahead of the cold front will average 30-40 mph (50-65 km/h) with gusts as high as 50 mph (80 km/h). As a result, power outages will occur across parts of Ireland on Saturday due to downed trees and power lines.
